Global Community Must Address Nations’ Fragility In Order To Eradicate Poverty

“…The mutually reinforcing relationship between fragility and armed conflict creates circumstances that perpetuate extreme poverty. … To eradicate extreme poverty in the next 20 years and fulfill the commitment made by President Obama, together, our collective development efforts must result in accountable, legitimate, inclusive democracies that can ultimately sustain our collective investments in health, education, and agriculture, protect fundamental human rights, and give their citizens a voice in their own future,” Nancy Lindborg, assistant administrator for USAID’s Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance, writes in the agency’s “IMPACTblog” (2/13).
